The theme for the first WS of 2019 will be... NEW HORIZONS

Jan 01, 2019,20:48 PM

Today our family is about to embark on a new life adventure, changing, cities, country, jobs, kindergartens...

Seeing how it is the start of a new year I thought a New Horizons topic appropriate. Whether it is a new life phase, horological new yearโ€™s resolutions, new incomings, new collecting topics, or if none of these, what you cherish most and want to continue using, irrespective of horizons - please post a watch that fits for you!

Depending on the internet connection I will put up the thread at around Midnight Singapore time tomorrow, like usually. 

May your horological 2019 be a great one!

A challenge it will be but one purportedly grows with them ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks a lot, Cpt Scarlet!

Interesting, certainly ๐Ÿ˜Š But thereโ€™s a pub across the street, so all will be good ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thank goodness for that !...

Thank you, Blomman!

We arrived yesterday and while dog tired, weโ€˜re happy that the journey began ๐Ÿ˜Š Our stuff will hopefully arrive soon and then the old place needs to be cleared, too but the new chapter has started ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

I hope you are getting a new company car, or perhaps a driver?

I have memories of some traffic in that region of the world! One of these? Or preferably these? One for the wife and kiddies and one for you? Mike ...  

Car and driver, both ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Unfortunately none of the ones pictured, although I am seriously thinking of buying a Niva just for fun. ๐Ÿ˜ I know it sounds preposterous but having a known face awaiting you at the airport is very nice. And he certainly can drive - done so professionally ... 

Having an experienced local driver is very important

I Have found it so in China and Mexico and my โ€œbig bossโ€ in England had one. Probably increased his productivity 50%! No parking hassles, able to concentrate on phone calls, less getting lost, etc. safer too, I think. A friend worked in the White House 6 ... 

Certainly is!

One of the very few places where our company still employs them (the board hasnโ€™t had them since 2001) but making life so much more pleasant. And cool profile picture, Mike! Much more fitting to my weather than yours ๐Ÿ˜Š

Good luck in the new country, city, and job KM

Although, I'm not quite sure where you moved to

Thanks a lot, Reintitan!

Will put up a post ASAP - all will be revealed ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fun theme, and best wishes to you! I know many emotions go with those big changes

 By: MichaelC : January 3rd, 2019-07:19
Excitement, apprehension, interest - at the end of the day, better to have experienced these big changes, IMO!

Certainly, Michael!

We have done so many times as a couple, this is the first time with children involved ๐Ÿ˜Š So a bit more stressful but as always full of possibilities ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Itโ€™s a lot but with the exception of now having children we have been through these kind of changes many a time. The children add an extra element for sure but they have an extra week before the kindergarten starts. Still need to get some furniture for th... 

It is nice to have experience on this kind of change. That helps a lot indeed! Of course I understand you when you say that children adds an extra. That week before ...

One thing that they still need to adopt to is the two hour time difference. Theyโ€™re still running on Vienna time ๐Ÿ˜‰
